This week on the show we will talk with Hank Gilman, executive at Fortune Magazine, and author of the recent book, 'You Can't Fire Everyone, and Other Lessons from an Accidental Manager'.
Hank has had a long and successful career as a writer and editor at some of the world's most prominent publications like the Wall Street Journal, the Boston Globe, and even the Beaufort Times.
But like many successful and talented professionals, Hank's introduction to the world of 'management' was not at all planned for or simple. Why do organizations simply promote the best workers to management positions without really equipping them with the skills and tools they will need to succeed? What is it like to go from 'one of the team' to leader of the team in one fell swoop? And what has Hank learned about hiring, firing, motivating, and guiding teams of talented and creative people in his years in the journalism business?
I hope you can join Hank and I this Thursday June 9th at 8:00pm ET for 'You Still Can't Fire Everyone'.
